Users / Command "Tune to Channel" use in Device Template
« on: March 20, 2011, 06:42:19 pm »
Gentlemen (and/or Ladies)  ;D

I have been using the '' script in mythtv (to change channels on my satellite box) for some time now.   However this is limited control of my stb.

I built a template for my DirecTV HR20, and read about changing channels using the script

This script invokes command #187 (Tune to Channel).   I assume I need to write a script inside this command to send the recieved channel to my STB (via RS232).  

I am not sure how to 'capture' the channel sent by the script within Command #187.  Do I read the command line parameters passed?  If  so, where can i read up on how this is done?


Hey all,
   I got the SoundGraph iMON LCD on a new case and got it working using lmce-lcdproccliet.   It looks as though it was folded into LMCE a year or so ago... has anyone tinkered with the template to get any of the icons working on the LCD?

If not, I might take a whack at it... but Ive not been able to find out where within LMCE that I could get the state of things like surround/speaker status, or file format.. and such..

If anyone could point me to where I can 'sample' the states of these, I may be able to tinker some.


Users / 'Video' listing page shows hard drive locations not video titles

I'm quite certain someone here can help me resolve this.   

For some reason the 'Video' page listing my ripped videos only shows the drive locations but not the video titles... if I click on the drives, I am presented with the titles on that drive....   

Is there somewhere I can correct this?

So far i have tried removing the drives, deleting them from the system, and then re-introducing them.. but that didnt fix the issue...

This is happening on my core/hybrid and my living room MD

Thanks in advance,

Hello all,
    Ive been experimenting with LMCE for about a year.. slowly collecting hardware.
I have been working with the HDPVR on my core/hybrid, and can get it to work fine capturing Component video from my H20 Sat box.
My MD can watch the satellite broadcasts as well thru the network, however only one MD can access the HDPVR at a time.  I figure that the H20 Sat box and the HDPVR should be on the MD anyway (each MD would have same setup).   However, configuring the MD in Mythtv setup exactly the same as it was on the core, and relocating the HDPVR to the MD usb port, watching tv fails with a message "Mythtv is using all inputs, but there are no active recordings?"

Restart of entire system results in the same outcome.   Removing the HDPVR references in the core/hybrid Mythtv setup and restarting still results in same outcome.   Relocating the HDPVR and H20 back on the core/hybrid, and reconfiguring as original, and satellite transmissions can be watched on the core/hybrid, or the MD.. but not both simultaneously.

Any recommendations on what I might look at to resolve this issue?   I woud assume that each MD should be able to support a capture device and have a satellite box local to it to watch different programming that another MD.
